Mayor Tells Elon Musk: Move Twitter HQ To Miami

Miami Mayor Francis Suarez is urging Elon Musk to move Twitter’s headquarters to Miami.

Suarez was responding to a tweet by Musk, in which he complained  about a report that San Francisco was investigating Twitter for adding employee sleeping quarters at its offices.

“It’s not about politics, it’s about the soul of our country,’ Suarez wrote in a tweet.

Bitcoin bull should be in our financial district, “wall st south”, Brickell. It should be relocated. Brickell needs more public art too.

We also need a new art museum! The Perez Art Museum Miami (PAMM) isn’t really representing Miami in the art world and having a general art museum, with impervious design, would boost Miami’s profile. The Albright-Knox Museum is one of the more decent art museums in America, however, it’s been renamed from the Albright-Knox to the Buffalo AKG Art Museum (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Buffalo_AKG_Art_Museum) because it’s been purchased by a billionaire as well as to further give Buffalo some name recognition in the Art World. Having a new Miami Art Museum would do the same for Miami.

Why should Twitter get any incentives to move here? Do regular people get them?

World’s (formerly) richest man shouldn’t need it, if he wants to move.

because thats what local and state governments do when large corporations want to relocate into your region. There are plenty of business friendly states that twitter could go to so its common place to sweeten the deal because the benefits offered to the company should turn into a net positive for the area that they operate in.

The urban environment in SF is incentive enough. His comments aren’t much different from those of other CEO’s who’ve moved businesses recently. Texas probably has the inside track given Musk’s other businesses, but can’t count out Miami as a new HQ location. Really no reason to stay in SF.

SF and the valley will be on to bigger and better things while places like TX and Miami try chasing old azz companies who ‘announce’ that they are getting outta dodge due to xyz place not good for business. Code for we are dated, no longer innovative, and looking for someone to subsidize the rest of our corporate lives,i.e lower cost locations whether it be within these United States or thereafter overseas someplace. While CA is looking and always moving forward, these backwater places are celebrating ‘dating the old girlfriend’. What a joke. You duffuses down here fall for any shiny azz object. LoL.

If Musk moved Twitter anywhere it would be to Austin where his Tesla operations are moving to and where Musk lives most of the time. Also the city has far more tech infrastructure than Miami.

Not really, there’s a massive freeway dividing it. Also, the non-redeveloped Overtown is two-thirds vacant lots.

This massive highway in Little Havana is a huge asset actually.

Not only does it connect us to Palm Beach and Fort Lauderdale, but it also looks like the Brooklyn Bridge from underneath and has expansive room for the Brickell park that everyone wants so desperately.

There is HUGE under-utilized space that the city is going to develop into a massive central-park style riverfront park (exactly what they are doing to connect Overtown under the freeway to Park West). It’s going to be a grand modern urban park and connect it to Brickell – and Little Havana with have lots of historical museums, culture, and destinations and plazas (the heart of Miami), with the little pedestrians down the center like in the Design District.

Plus it’s close to the finest property in Miami, Vizcaya, Coral Gables, Coconut Grove, etc.

Little Havana is better situated. It’s between the most expensive parts of Miami, Brickell, Coral Gables and Coconut Grove, and one can walk or ride a bike to any of these areas. What’s Overtown by? I hope they update it, but don’t pretend it’s a gold mine compared to Little Havana. Just wait until the riverfront develops!
